Yeah Nintendo has had a weird Gen. some games like Splatoon and Smash have received amazing support while others just get left forever.

Mario Party is the one that really got left for dead.

Not a single update.

So an update on this.

I'm now at 5 hours played....while my wife is at 35 hours played.

I think I'm going to take advantage of the Shoppers Optimum point redemption to pick her up her own Switch Lite today.

Hooray! Happy to see Nintendo hasn't completely forgotten about it. Some really cool stuff in this update, especially the Zelda content and race mode on pre-made Nintendo courses. Can't wait to check it out!

Haven't seen it mentioned here but Nintendo's black friday sale ends tomorrow. I was finally able to get BotW on sale, only took 2.5 years.

My guess is it’s unlikely.

Unless somebody like Limited Run games does a limited edition physical release that feels like something that is a digital only game.

I feel like a couple of posters have mentioned owning both a switch and a switch lite. How does that work for saved data and game progress? Do you have to pretty much play the same game on one system or can you switch back and forth easily?

You can switch save files back and forth but it’s not super easy. Both Switch systems need to be on and close together, then you go to the one that has the save and hit “Transfer save data to another system” (or some option like that). Then you go to the other one and hit “Receive data from another system” — then they’ll soend a few minutes looking for each other and swapping data, which can take a while depending on how big the file is. Then it will clear the file from the first system, for some reason.

It’s not terrible but it’s certainly not super intuitive. It would be fine if you were going out of town for a week and wanted your files on the Lite, but I imagine it becoming a bit of a pain to do every day.

Sports Story (the sequel to Golf Story) announced for Switch for 2020.



Looks awesome!

And if you haven't played Golf Story you should check it out, it's excellent.

While I agree that Golf Story seems to be a pretty good game, I've tried multiple times to finish it and just couldn't stay interested for whatever reason. I guess it's just not my kind of game.

One of many who is too boring; thinks that there should be rules regarding grammar in custom user titles, and also makes moderators wonder if there is a charachter limit here. I mean come on- you would think that would be a limitation in the software

Same. I like it, it's a good game, but I just lose interest after a couple hours at a time. Of course, given the story is little more than an excuse plot, I can just pick it up for a couple hours right were I left off without feeling like I missed out on something.

Just a wee bump here to say a couple of things:

Anyone playing Ring Fit Adventure? This looked totally laughable on the release video, and only Nintendo could sell a $100 pilates ring (OK - plus a leg strap and a game). Then I read some of the reviews and thought I'd take a closer look. The overall sentiment in the reviews is: "I thought that this would be terrible but it is surprisingly good". And then I took the gamble and bought one.

Holy smokes is it good. And it actually gets your heart rate up and gives you a challenge, all while playing a very basic RPG with little battles along the way. The caveat is that I'm a 40-year-old guy, and while I used to play a lot of soccer, hip issues have kept me from paying that in recent years. I'm not sedentary by any means, but I also find the gym/bike/elliptical extremely boring. For something that I can do for a bit after the kid is in bed and not be bored out of my mind, this is proving to be a good fit. If you're a regular at the gym, you may not get as much from it. But for me (and my wife), we are finding it to be good.

And also - just would like to share a positive experience with Nintendo's service department. My pro controller was just over a year old and developed a drifting issue on my left stick. For example, Luigi would walk downwards when I wasn't pressing it down. The calibration screen showed some drifting and some inconsistent wobble when it should be fully in one direction. I tried the canned air, gently putting a bit of rubbing alcohol on the ball part, etc. and it could sometimes be solved for a session, but it would always return.

Figured I'd try Nintendo before trying to fix it myself. Apparently the warranty is only 90 days on those things (thought it would be a year), so the agent said I'd have to pay out of pocket. A bit annoyed, I asked why a known problem like that would require a charge, and I was expecting $50 or 60. He said he'd give me free shipping in both directions and also shave $10 off, but I still doubted that it would be worth it. It cost a grand total of $20, which was a pleasant surprise. 9 days after leaving my possession it returned, but it was a brand new pro controller instead!

So on one hand, their hardware could sometimes be better and the warranty longer. On the other hand, $20 to replace (or fix) a 13-month-old pro controller is pretty reasonable. Your results may vary, but before giving up on something or risking a DIY repair, give Nintendo a shot. You might be pleasantly surprised.

I have Ring Fit, but haven't played much due to injury. It's a freaking workout.

Also, all the handwringing about "Dexit" in the latest Pokemon game went for nothing. 16 million copies shipped in six weeks.

Yeah, too bad. Game looks dull and easy so I never even bothered. With that kind of commercial response there's obviously no reason to try to make a better game. Series really could've used a "Skyward Sword."
